Time running out to have views heard on HS2 rail link from Fradley to Crewe
Published December 16th, 2014
Land and property owners likely to be impacted by the proposed HS2 rail link from Fradley to Crewe are being reminded that the deadline is fast approaching to make their views heard in the safeguarding consultation.
The consultation period to safeguard Phase 2 from Fradley to Crewe ends on January 6 so there is limited time left to make representation.
“The aim of safeguarding is to ensure new developments in the corridor do not affect the ability to build or operate HS2,” explained surveyor Arran Dixon of Berrys at Northwich.
“Just because land has been safeguarded it does not necessarily mean that it will be used by the project but once land has been safeguarded it enables qualifying owners to serve a blight notice on the government requiring them to purchase the affected property if required,” he said.
The consultation process opened on November 4, 2014 to seek opinions of landowners affected by the proposed HS2 route and is the only opportunity affected landowners in the area will get to have their views heard.
“If your property or business will be impacted by the proposed HS2 works it is really important that you take this opportunity to have your say before the upcoming deadline,” Arran advised.
